It was Egypt that demanded "total withdrawal for total peace", including every grain of sand. But it is now Egypt that is not delivering on total peace, by cheating on the demilitarization of Sinai and not controlling its inhabitants. It is not clear that some or all of the attackers were not Egyptian soldiers (which has happened before), or that the infiltration was not aided and a abetted by the Egyptian border police from whose post they entered Israel. At a minumum, Egypt's opening ofthe Gaza border in flagrant violation of past agreements, together with its allowing of arms smuggling across the demilitarized Sinai in violation of treaties, places much of the blame on Egypt already. They are lucky Israell killed only the 3 Egyptian soldiers who got in the way of Israel's self defense operation.
